Morning rituals are important. They’re capable of deciding the mood we’d be wearing for at least most of the day, if not the whole. A very important part of this routine is our daily morning steaming mug of caffeine that we’ve been using to give us a wake-up jolt. We know it isn’t all healthy and have bean wanting to consider an alternative to coffee. Thinking of giving up on the habit leaves you all (D)epresso? This time, try our way and we’re sure you’d be thanking us a latte by the end!
5 Healthy Alternatives To Coffee (Caffeine)
- Guilt Tea
- Coconut Water
- Pomegranate Juice
- Carob Powder or Raw Cacao Powder
1. Guilt-tea As Charged
Originating from our neighbouring land, tea, or popularly known as ‘chai’ in India, is a soothing beverage made using rich black tea along with milk and a variety of spices. You can either go solo with Matcha, Lavender, Chamomile, Kombucha or mix it all and Go Green completely. Tea is a great alternative to coffee and will not only help you remain calm but also stop you from pro-caffenating. If you don’t succeed at first, don’t refrain from chai-ing again!
2. In Love With The Coco
If there’s something that make us go-nuts, it is definitely the water from the coconuts! We agree, it may not be the most exciting beverage while considering an alternative to coffee, but it definitely could make you a fan of its clear, naturally sweet, energising water. All the natural goodness along with the bio-active enzymes and potassium keeps you hydrated and is an amazing option during lunch or post workout. It usually isn’t the go to option for a morning beverage, but a little creativity and experimentation can definitely tackle that. So let’s get cracking?
3. Take It For Granted
Loaded with all good, this ruby-red berry is full of antioxidants, vitamins, fibres and is the perfect choice for help against cancer, diabetes and heart ailments. The sweet and tangy pomegranate juice not only keeps you away from serious ailments but also takes care of your blood pressure along with providing uber energy. Sip it alone. Blend it with others. Pom is the bomb in everything!
4. Shake It Off
Shake it all off. The caffeine as well as all the unhealthy calories. Replace it with nothing but all the goodness from the veggies and fruits, crushed in a smoothie. You could go with the greens like kale, matcha, spinach, or go the fruit-full way with berries, bananas, pineapple and more. Add some Chia seeds to ‘em and give it a nutritional boost.

It may sound a little difficult at first, but we’re sure, you can do this!
